             For the first time, Mexican drug gangs have used a
             car bomb to attack police and civilians, the Mexican
             army says.

             Yesterday in downtown Ciudad Juarez, across the
             border from El Paso, Texas, a car packed with 22
             pounds of C4 explosives and detonated by mobile
             phone killed two police officers and a paramedic,
             and wounded at least 16 other civilians or officers.
             (Agence France-Presse reports a doctor was also
             killed.)

             Police called the attack retaliation for the arrest of
                                                                           CAPTION
             Jesus Acosta Guerrero, a leader of the La Linea                                                                    AP
             drug gang, which is affiliated with the Juarez cartel.

             Mayor Jose Reyes told the Associated Press the attackers set a trap for federal police before detonating the explosive
             inside a parked car after police and paramedics responded to a report of an injured officer.

             The El Paso Times tells a different story, saying that a Ford Focus rammed two police cars and that the explosion
             "occurred soon after." It was heard and seen in both cities.

             The report cites Mexico's attorney general, saying he "ruled out narco-terrorism" at a morning news conference in
             Mexico City.

             Police initially believed the explosion was caused by grenades thrown by gunmen.

             These politicians who are selling out to granting amnesty to illegals in order to get votes are selfish and disgusting.

             The worst are the ones who have sided one way and got elected, and then are siding another way to get re-elected in order to
             capture the "new vote," to get the most votes for their party, regardless of what the majority of Americans want. just proves
             that there is no respect for the views of voters.

             What happened to the ones who ran to represent and protect our citizens and our country. It is like some of them will do
             anything to get elected, and to be liked.

             Might not agree on 100% with what they do, but I sure do wish I could find a politician who was not just out for themselves,
             who at least likes the country they live in, knowing that in reality, we as a county are not perfect, but we sure do try our dang
             best, and makes no apologies.

             Kinda like being married to your spouse, you know they're not perfect, but should anybody dare cross the line and say or do
             anything to them...pity the fool that does!

             Wish I could find those politicians that realizes that there is more to the job than placing a hand over their heart, or wearing an
             American pin on their lapel, that it is all about listening to the people, protecting the people, and honoring the words that they
             speak. It's whats in the heart the heart that matters.

             You know, we invaded Iraq without a really good reason. But it's starting to look like there is a good reason to invade Mexico,
             kill the terrorists, and establish a new government. Just sayin'.

             Without a doubt it was a Toyota vehicle that ignited itself, and the drug gangs are street- wise and are taking credit for it.
